Why I write poems..

By: Joe Attanasio 2011

Poetry to me,

Is more then I can see.

Poetry I can feel,

Is a big deal.

My words from the heart,

Else I never start.

Words from the soul,

Always my goal.

Poetry an expression,

Not a profession.

Words to stir your thought,

Lessons to be taught.

Words that share,

Ideas that scare.

Events you can relate,

Emotions used as bait.

I write to rid my guilt,

Feelings stitched like quilts.

Words that make me free,

Listen to my plea.

I want to tell a story,

I can pass the glory.

I need to touch someone,

I hope you're the one.

I want you to contemplate,

I want you to relate.

Dig deep and think,

I hope we are in sinc.

My words not always flower,

But I hope have power.

For I am but a common man,

Feel me, touch me, if you can.
